Anantachai is a passable choice if you’re looking for a cheap room with a sea view near the centre of the beach road.

Doubling as a shop selling floaty toys and swimsuits on the ground floor, the acid-green converted shophouse has a few types of rooms on offer. We’d go for the spacious seaview editions sporting plastic chairs on balconies along with air-con, widescreen LCD TVs, desks, fridges, kettles, firm beds and small hot-water wet bathrooms. While the furniture is cheap and dinged up, the seaview rooms are bright and appeared clean.

Smart rooms for the money.

Across the hall, budgeteers could save cash on a much more cramped room—probably half the size of the seaview digs—that also come with TVs and private bathrooms but no fridges. They do have balconies but these are barely big enough to stand on. Out the back in a separate building, the priciest rooms don’t have sea views and are not worth the extra 100 baht unless you can’t live without a shinier tile floor.

Overall the place has a thrown-together look but the value isn’t bad, as most places along the beach road charge at least 1,000 baht for an air-con room with a seaview balcony. Staffers in green shirts speak a little English and offer free WiFi along with bicycle and motorbike rental.

On nearby Soi Bus Station, The Beach Cha-am Guesthouse offers more modern rooms at similar rates with a more professional atmosphere, but with balconies overlooking ugly concrete buildings and seedy bars rather than the sea. For a cheaper option you could try the Blue Lagoon off Naranthip Road, which is a pub that rents out a few basic rooms in the 300 to 500 baht range upstairs.
